Personally, I would call hunting a sport.

Maybe beaver hunting. Becuase the physical activity that results meets Colt’s criteria of sweat and raised heart rate, primarily due to the pneumatic pounding, ass-slapping, head-pulling, headboard-banging, and chandelier swinging routine. :mrgreen:

good list - I would add speedskating and skiing under sports, and probably put surfing and luge in there, you have to be in incredible shape to do those, oh, and definitely beaver hunting (ala CJR'ssuggestion) - what about snowboarding and windsurfing and hanggliding?

Thanks, Colt. Definitely, when it’s my hunting sport, both participants are always winners; I take great pride in that (even though I get outscored in the end). :wink:

Too funny, TMC. :mrgreen: Want that beaver shaved or el naturale?

Here's a beaver hunting lesson, if you haven't seen it already:

An 80-year-old man went to his doctor for his quarterly check-up. The doctor asked him how he was feeling and the 80-year-old said, "Things are great and I've never felt better. I now have a 20 year-old bride who is pregnant with my child. So what do you think about that?" The doctor considered his question for a minute and then began to tell a story. "I have an older friend, much like you, who is an avid hunter and never misses a season. One day when he was setting off hunting, he was in a bit of a hurry and accidentally picked up his walking cane instead of his gun. As he neared a lake he came across a very large beaver sitting at the water's edge. He realized he'd left his gun at home and so couldn't shoot the magnificent creature but out of habit he raised his cane, aimed it at the animal as if it were his favorite hunting rifle and went 'bang, bang!'. Miraculously, he also heard two shots rang out and the beaver fell over dead. Now, what do you think of that?" asked the doctor. The 80-year-old said, "If you ask me, I'd say somebody else pumped a couple of rounds into that beaver." The doctor replied, "My point exactly." :mrgreen:

i love hockey, im a big fan of the sharks... hockey players are the most athletic players... watch the game and you'll know why... it is a very tiring sport thats why players stay on the ice for an average of 2-3 mins at a time... and when youre on the ice, youre constantly getting hit by other bodies... and skating with hockey sticks the whole time isnt very comfortable... but of course, basketball comes first for me.. its the sport i play and watch...

I am more of a Sharks fan than a hockey fan. However constant action, and scoring more often with updated rules are amking it more appealing. I follow all Bay Area aports, its easy to like the Sharks. They are well ran, have a GREAT fan base, the atmosphere at the games, and Joe Thornton. THe Warriors and the Sharks are all we have ahd to cheer about in the Bay Sports scene latley...
